I can't say enough GREAT things about Elephant Valley Lodge! The camp and staff were all amazing. They greeted us at the airport and from that point on our entire trip was everything we hoped for and more. We did three amazing game drives in Chobe, including one as a river cruise. After our first evening game drive, we went...

We traveled to this camp 4 years ago and had such a great experience we came back with other families this year. The upgrades are great that they have done to the camp and the elephants at the water hole were amazing. The food was a highlight as well. The heated beds were amazing during the cold weather. Make sure...

Now this is our style of camping. Our tent was well equipment and very comfortable with wonderful views directly into the waterhole and surrounding area. The bed was comfortable with an electric blanket for the chilly nights and the bathroom facilities were spacious if somewhat cold in the morning. Sleeping with the sounds of wild animals such as Hyenas, Lions,...

As we arrived just prior to dark we were told to come quickly through reception to the outdoor lounge area which overlooked a water pool. There we saw many buffalo and about 30 elephants not 20 metres away. An electric fence which they knew about separated us. The highlight of my trip; the best sight since Tanzania 3years ago. Later...

We stayed at Elephant Valley Lodge as our final camp in Botswana during our honeymoon in December 2014. Perhaps we may have enjoyed Elephant Valley Lodge better if this had been our first camp of the honeymoon, but after having had breathtaking, fantastic experiences at the 3 previous camps throughout Botswana, we were left bitterly disappointed (and in fact, a...

Just back from our African holiday – stayed 7 nights at Elephant Valley lodge. Amazing! The location is just great. Its situated right beside a watering hole.

We booked a two day one night trip through Jollyboys in Livingstone, Zambia. Transferred by road from Livingstone to the Kazungula Ferry and then picked up from the Botswana border and taken on a boat cruise.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated in the Lesoma Valley (corridor between Chobe National Park and Wangi National Park). All year round waterhole in front of lodge that has daily visitations of all game including BIG 4. We are far enough away from villages and towns to enjoy the natural sounds of the bush (lions roaring, hyenas calling and elephants trumpeting). We have 24 hour electrical power, with fans and electric blankets (winter only) plus the whole property is secured by a perimeter electrical fence to keep out dangerous animals. We are 30 minutes from an International Airport (Kasane)and 30 minutes from a Medical Center. ... more   less
